When we asked people about diversity in New Zealand and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"New Zealand is an incredibly diverse country, with its population being made up of people from a variety of racial and cultural backgrounds. Every major ethnic group is represented in New Zealand, creating a truly multicultural atmosphere. The people of New Zealand are very accepting of differences, with thriving communities of minorities usually coexisting peacefully with majority populations. Respect is a core value of the society, and this is reflected in the way that people of different races, religions, and sexual orientations are treated," wrote a member who made the move to New Zealand.

"There are a surprising number of UK and US immigrants here in addition to the Maori and kiwis of European descent. The latter makes up about 90% of the population according to the latest census info online. Although they generally don't agree with American policy, they can separate individuals from the nation as a whole. People are straight forward and usually friendly. There's a lot of religious tolerance, and the small "religious right" here has less of an impact on mainstream opinion," explained one expat living in Kapiti Coast , New Zealand.
